    At least it is in the paint both, the B5 paint supplier must be on strike.

    Be careful on the paint. Hopefully they worked the bugs out, my 13 392 had 28 paint defects and I refused the car ultimately ordering another which had 3 paint defects. I sure hope that's fixed because it will be a hard decision if my 15 hellcat has defects. I had called srt about it but they really offered no explanation.

    It will be tough if the car arrives with any kind of defect. I am buying the car from a dealer 7 hours away and they are delivering it.

    Geez, that does add a layer of challenge if you drive all that way, has flaws, and then you leave it and drive all the way back. I only have to drive 4 miles! It would still be hard to leave it. I will probably tell them I am gonna drive it till they can get shipping arranged. :D Then it is probably like sending dinner back, never know what is gonna be brought back out!!!LOL what's the equivalent of a spitter for car returns?:rolleyes:

    Hey fellow members I think these issues will be minimized because chances are the cars will be shipped by end of October this month and they are holding all hellcats to ensure quality before releasing them to the dealership distribution centers.

    They are holding ALL Hellcats from the first allocation until they're all ready?

    Dodge wants to make sure that everything is perfect, before they ship.

    I would be patient now, rather than have issues when you pick
    your new baby up.

    It will be worth it.
